DEVELOPING HEALTHY ORAL HABITS
Brenda Mangan is a Registered Dental Hygienist and Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist. She entered the field of dental hygiene as a way to help improve a patient's overall health by educating patients about the importance of oral health. She started her exploration of Myofunctional Therapy because of a statistic she heard while taking a continuing education course it said: Research has found half of the children with ADHD show symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing, and also indicates that 20-30 percent of people with ADHD also have obstructive sleep apnea. Having 2 children diagnosed with ADHD this peaked her interest and she started exploring all aspects of Myofunctional Therapy. It is the combination of improving patients health while making a difference to the quality of life that made Myofunctioal Therapy the perfect choice.
